Doctor uses music to heal troubled minds

Never underestimate the power of music, says psychiatrist Dr Nguyen Van Tho. It can heal people.

Tho should know. He has spent years researching the effects of music therapy on psychiatric patients and is a pioneer of the Guided Image and Music. He now works at National Mental Hospital 2 in Bien Hoa District in the southern province of Dong Nai.

The doctor has countless cases on file that he can use to prove his point. As an example, he refers to one patient at the hospital, Le Van Tan*, a diagnosed schizophrenic.

It’s next to impossible to read Tan’s turbulent past from his appearance, he is tall, smart and attentive. This was not the case when he first arrived, Tho tells us.
